I Will Remember

(This is a poem in memory of my friend's mother who passed away this Saturday. My heart goes out to their family.)

I will remember all of the times you cooked for me.
I will remember all of the times you showed love to me.

All of the moments that you sacrificed,
All of the times you worked over time,
All of the moments I'll never have with you,
I will remember.

I will regret all the times I should have told you I loved you.
I will think hard and blink back the tears I should have shed for you.

All of the times that you washed my clothes,
All of the times that you held me close,
The way that you looked when I made you proud and you smiled,
I will remember.

Mother, you made me, you loved me, and I loved you too
Mother, I wished I had made you prouder and taken better care of you

All of the times you rocked me to sleep,
All of the times you taught to me to live,
The way that I'll miss you now that you're gone- I miss you, Mom-
I will remember.
